"Clifton,  Arizona Mining Town" and a Good Guy
 
07:11
One many old mining towns that dot Az. The last time I passed thru, you went right thru old town. I was hoping to be able to walk around both Clifton and Morenci and record. 'Good Guys' is a term I used to describe Az. Highway Patrolman. Growing up here in Az. in the 50s. The Highway Patrolman were more than highway patrolman, they were part of the Rural Communities. And on long two lane highways (?) some Dirt. If you broke down, they were the ones you looked for first for help.(68 MPH in a 50 MPH zone)

Mining Copper

Views of the Open Pit Freeport McMoRan Mine in Morenci, eastern Arizona. Mining copper, molybdenum, gold. Giant Caterpillar trucks each haul 200+ tons of ore bearing rock to be processed. Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep are often seen in the area. Music is "Ghosts N Stuff" by Deadmau5 and I have no rights to the music but if you like it you can purchase it on iTunes and other sources. Video by iPhone, still photos by Canon, all my images.

Drone's Eye View of Morenci & Chino Mines
 
04:17
The Morenci mining district in Arizona and the Chino mining district nearby in New Mexico both have a long history. Morenci's current size is massive, but constant expansions have consumed a lot of the evidence of its early workings. Chino is also a large and modern mine, but its history is still visible throughout the district.

Blast up in Garfield at the Morenci Mine 6-4-08 4:54 pm
 
00:16
This was a blast that I filmed on June 4th 2008 as a Haul Truck Operator up in the Garfield area at the Morenci Mine. The timing was crucial as you never know when they will detonate a drilling area. I happened to be at the exit of a dump located just above this area,stuck at the top behind a long row of trucks while we were on a blast delay...

Freeport McMoran Copper Acid leak Clifton, AZ
 
04:13
Hello All, This is not meant to be disparaging of FMI (Freeport McMoran) in Clifton Arizona. It is meant to show that regardless of any sort of effort to provide safety and controls, human error does occur. Observations from visiting the area, Nov 2, 2008 are below. Again, these are personal perceptions and observations accompanied by photographs taken by me and one of my neighbors and video to show the potential impact of a mine in a mountainous area above a town. One slideshow: http://s482.photobucket.com/albums/rr189/VailCoronaAZ/Freeport%20McMoran%20Sulfuric%20Acid%20Spill/?albumview=slideshow Second slideshow: http://s388.photobucket.com/albums/oo325/NoMiningOff83/FMI%20Leak%20%2011-02-08/?albumview=slideshow 1. Upward of 100 contractors and construction vehicles removing soil and debris from the creek or channel from the "top" of 191 at the curve near the mine to the bridge where Chase Creek meets the San Francisco River. 2. Some areas were not being actively worked on, but others had quite a bit of activity. What I noticed in the area towards the mine, just outside of Clifton was an area that was perhaps a "river walk" ? with concrete benches and perhaps tables? I am not completely sure as it was full of large dirt haulers and loading machines. 3. There was a Bighorn Sheep crossing sign on 191 at the approximate area. 4. We were told to get off the Bridge by contractors, just south of an old Sonic by a U Haul place. We were crossing it so that was our intention. It was the second time we had been told to leave a public area that was not cordoned off. When were standing there for a brief moment our eyes and throat were burning. Maybe our tolerance is not built up to that sort of thing. 5.The distance of 2 miles is probably accurate from the dam to the San Francisco River. Someone can Google earth it. 6. If that substance did not hit the San Fransisco River it is a miracle. Where the picture was taken of the men digging with shovels wearing masks and shown in the paper, it is literally just a bridge span and half away. 7. We spoke with a city official who said the spill was 100 thousand gallons plus of Sulfuric acid, 100 gallons of some other chemical he could not remember the same of. He said we could take pictures as long as we did not cause a safety hazard. We were followed by subcontractor trucks but at no time were we ever in or near an active cordoned off area or construction vehicles. 8. There are homes and businesses all along Chase Creek past the Uhaul place and a daycare center too. 9. Here's the thing. It is OBVIOUS FMI has spent millions working with a subcontractor to get rid of toxic materials and to rebuild the hills where the old smelter stood. It is also apparent from the "river walk" there has been an attempt to revegetate and so forth. 10. Something? human error? has caused all of that to go down the tubes. Even if the materials themselves are not an issue (and I am not saying one way or another) those diesel trucks idle, leak oil and run over embankments. 11. There will be increased sedimentation into the San Francisco River (which you can see happens already in the pictures). 12. When we were there we saw one environmental vehicle and it was game and fish parked at the hotel. 13. The whole length of the creek was taped off with safety tape, but most had either fallen down or was still being put up. 14. The way to handle the situation yesterday when we were there was to send an FMI employee to talk to us about what they were doing to make things right. If they had had been open and not had contractors following us around in trucks when were doing nothing wrong it would have made us feel things were more in good faith.
